Friday Reads 8.18.2017
By Sharon Kay Penman The Sunne In Splendour: A Novel of Richard III (1st) - Sharon Kay Penman
This Side of Murder - Anna Lee Huber
How the Light Gets In - Louise Penny
Dial Meow for Murder (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery) - Bethany Blake

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore has left a book hangover since I found it disturbing. Guess I won't be re- reading that. So I didn't read much this week. 

 

Still working on The Sunne in Splendour. Its 900 pages long so it'll be with me for some time I think. Need to dive back in...

 

I'm torn between three books right now- 

 

This Side of Murder  - Love this author. I started the first chapter. 

 

How the Light Gets In - Need to catch up on this series.

 

Dial Meow for Murder- The first book in this series pleasantly surprised me with how good it was so I'm looking forward to this one.

 

No big plans for the weekend for once. I'm going to enjoy the down time.

 

Happy reading!

Murder Take Three: A British Country House mystery (A Langham and Dupre Mystery) - Eric Brown
When I started reading this book, I just knew that there was going to be an ending that included gathering everyone in one room and announcing the killer. Yep, I was right. It was just that kind of read.

On a film set where just about everyone has some kind of hatred for the director, there are lots of suspects when his girlfriend gets killed in his bed. 

At the ending with the list of suspects (everyone on the set) the culprit had a jaw dropping secret. There is also a historical murder that was once solved, or was it?

A decent and entertaining read.

Thanks to Severn House and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

A new sleuth
Booked 4 Murder - J.C. Eaton

*SPOILERS TO FOLLOW*

 

I love this book. Mostly because of the main character, who is pretty much the antithesis of current cozy mystery heroines. She has to be badgered into checking into the murders to begin with, she constantly misses/misreads clues, and she only manages to get one out of four right when figuring out who did what. I also really liked that it was a murder mystery with no murderer.

How Many Books Do You Read At One Time?
Murder under Cover - Kate Carlisle
Owls Well That Ends Well - Donna Andrews
The Overton Window - Glenn Beck
Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 Days - John A Carroll
The Devotional Bible: Experiencing The Heart of Jesus - Max Lucado
Mint Chip Murder: A Donut Hole Cozy Mystery - Book 6 - Susan Gillard

It seems that a carry over from my college days is that I will read several books at once. Mostly because I have books everywhere and in two formats....paper and ebook. I have a book upstairs by my bed, a book that is in my car, a book in my purse, a book downstairs near my chair. When I have trouble getting into a book (see "The Overton Window") I will start reading other books. The other thing is that the Bible is a work in progress. I am (and have tried many times) to read the Bible in a Year. This year, I am doing better, but I have fallen behind. I find that the books that get read the most or fastest are the cozy mysteries (my favorites). I try to sit and read things that require quiet when I am alone and that is almost never. I have my children that are homeschooled and my husband and just when I start to get into a book, they demand my attention, so I put that aside and then they don't want my attention until I touch it again. So as a curiosity....how many books do you read at one time? Are they all the same genre or are they a mixture? Are they the same media or different?

Book Tour: Open Season for Murder by Lauren Carr

Open season for Murder, Get you involved with a cold case from the beginning. You get brought in with a mysterious phone call to Mac. Who is the caller? We get all kinds of killers. We also get deaths at every turn. Why the Diablo ball?

 

Who wants Carlyle dead or anyone else for that matter. Brian Galestar, comes about and his he as suspects to Lindsey York death? Who wanted Lindsey York dead and Jasmine Simpson? Reva Saint Clair is around as well. Who killed Aston Piedmont?

 

You go for a ride with Mac and David on an adventure. We sure find out who good at solving mysteries around Spencer Maryland. Lauren Carr plots are good and you are invested throughout the book.  There's a story inside the main story. You get captive into the story and you will not want to leave these charters from this series or any of Lauren Carr mysteries.


Lauren Carr is one talented writer. She brings you along to find out who the killer is. One thing I love about her mysteries is that you never know who the murderer is? I have read a few of her books already and reviewed a few of them. You are welcome to read my reviews that are part of this audiobook palooza. My reviews are Cancelled Vows, A Fine Year for Murder, Killer in the Band, The Murders at Astaire Castle, Candidate for Murder, 3 Days to Forever, Kill and Run, Old Love Die Hard, 12 To Murder.
